Live and loud.

Rosemary Malign’s car broke down the day the tour started. She never made it out of St. Louis. No one bothered to tell me. I was looking forward, greatly, to seeing Ms. Malign do her earsplitting thing. Nunslaughter were playing at the club upstairs from EMFW. No one bothered to tell me. There were a few spots where some good death metal would have been just the thing to counteract boredom. Peter Sotos came in from Chicago to catch the show. No one bothered to tell me until I was standing face to face with the guy being introduced. I could have a signed copy of Total Abuse now.

They will no doubt build a huge following extremely quickly.

I have no idea why this picture comes up when one googles taint goat peanut gallery akron. But I cannot find a poster and I like this better anyway.

When Texas’ finest native musician and Texas’ finest transplanted musician decide to hit the road, you can pretty much be guaranteed that something awful is going to happen. And you’re probably going to love every minute of it.

No, you dimwits, of course I wasn’t unbiased.

The four-year reign of terror is over. Death Squad is done playing east of the Mississippi in north America. It’ll never happen again. And a small, select crowd from Ohio and Pennsylvania were on hand Saturday night to witness the swan song.
